Meet the gathering storm: The impact of Brexit on European M&A
The latest polls suggests a small majority of British voters favor an exit from the EU. What would a Brexit mean for investments on intercontinental Europe? At the M&A Forum, which will be held at ING’s London office on May 11th, corporate executives, macro economists and investors will discuss how they respond to this potential historical event.

While economic trade and finance is becoming more and more globalized, the political sentiment in the Western world tend to be in favour of de-globalization. Beside the rise of Donald Trump and the Dutch latest referendum on a trade agreement with Ukraine, there is the possible exit of the UK. In June the Brits are going to decide whether they stay in the Union or not.

The economic implications of the political Brexit will be huge, according to high profile politicians and economists. Catherine Mann of the OECD predicts a Brexit would be bad for inward investment in the UK from the EU.

How significant is M&A-activity from UK to the EU at the moment? What does the market think will be the outcome of the British referendum? And if Brexit happens, what will it mean for The City of London as financial hub for European private equity and M&A?
